Vidisco’s A-Si system, RayzorX Pro for NDT inspections, has been featured in a recent article about X-ray inspections for NDT applications in the service of art research. The article details the research procedure and results as conducted by O. Golan from the Afeka Academic College, K. Raphael from the Hebrew University and D. Ashkenazi of the Tel-Aviv University. The rare sword was recently acquired by a private collector and brought to the Vidisco Ltd. laboratory for x-ray inspection. It is now on display at the Israel museum in Jerusalem.
